Have rosacea? Dr. Khuu can help you

​Posted By: Duke Khuu, MD, Dermatology, Board Certified Dermatologist, Khuu Dermatology, California

If you suffer from rosacea, you should see Dr. Duke Khuu, who can work wonders to reduce the redness.

Rosacea, which causes conspicuous redness and blemishes, is sometimes called "adult acne," but that's actually a misnomer — it is its own condition and needs to be evaluated and treated correctly, said Dr. Khuu, a board-certified dermatologist who earned his medical degree from Stanford University. Topical and oral medications are available, but Dr. Khuu says every patient who needs redness removed should be treated with his top-of-the-line Vbeam laser. The laser targets hemoglobin in facial blood vessels and destroys it, thus banishing the redness.

The treatments are done in several sessions performed every six weeks, and patients usually start to see good results after three sessions. After the first cycle of treatment, patients usually get touchups every six months to a year to maintain their skin.

The hippo has neither sweat nor sebaceous glands but does have unique glands that produce a viscous red fluid, leading to the myth that hippos "sweat blood."  This is what I found most fascinating.  This thick mucous is a source of natural sunscreen for the species under hot African sun.  It is also a source for skin moisturizers and germ prevention.   So despite the dirty environment of the rivers and swamps in which they live, hippos do not get a...
